Waxie’s Dargle

1. Says my auld one to your auld one
Will you come to the Waxie’s dargle
Says your auld one to my auld one
Sure I haven’t got a farthing
I’ve just been down to Monto town
To see Uncle McArdle
But he wouldn’t lend me a half a crown
To go to the Waxie’s dargle
What’ll you have, will you have a pint
Yes, I’ll have a pint with you, sir
And if one of us doesn’t order soon
We’ll be thrown out of the boozer

2. Says my auld one to your auld one
Will you come to the Galway races
Says your auld one to my auld one
With the price of my auld lad’s braces
I went down to Capel Street
To the pawn shop money lenders
But they wouldn’t give me a couple of bob
On my auld lad’s red suspenders
What’ll you have, will you have a pint
Yes, I’ll have a pint with you, sir
And if one of us doesn’t order soon
We’ll be thrown out of the boozer

3. Says my auld one to your auld one
We’ve got no beef nor mutton
But if we go down to Monto town
We might get a drink for nothin’
Here’s a piece of good advice
I got from an auld fish-monger
When food is scarce and you see the hearse
You’ll know you’ve died of hunger
What’ll you have, will you have a pint
Yes, I’ll have a pint with you, sir
And if one of us doesn’t order soon
We’ll be thrown out of the boozer
